A team of four cyclists from Wirral Autistic Society has raised more than £2,500 on a 1,000 mile unsupported ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats. They carried all their own equipment on the two week challenge.

They spent a year training and planning their marathon trip which was the idea of Neil Murphy after his eight-year-old neice had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

All the funds are being split between CHICS, Children with Cancer Support Group and the Wirral Autistic Society.


The team was made up of Neil Murphy, Kevin Mulligan, Michael Howard and Tom Harbor.
